Announcement    ***Please read before ordering****

Welcome to Let's Get Chalky! I create customized birthday chalkboards, pregnancy announcements, first and last day of school signs, home decor and more. Browse through my sections to find the creation that best suits your needs or ask me to create it for you! I ONLY CREATE DIGITAL FILES, so nothing is physically shipped to you from this shop.

Enjoy the 'look' of a chalkboard without all the MESS! My 'digital' chalkboards are 'authentic' looking with eraser marks and all so when printed you can't tell the difference between it and a real chalkboard (until you touch it of course!). I feel it adds character to the boards and hope you do too :) My chalkboard backgrounds are HAND CREATED by me so it makes them extra special as no one else will have them!

My creations are always original and each order is custom to the individual. I've expanded outside of the chalkboard design so take a look at my other listings too. Custom creations are always welcome and encouraged (see my custom orders section)! Again, all of my listings are digital files (JPEG files or PDF upon request) which means nothing is physically shipped to you, only emailed.

I look forward to working with you!

About LetsGetChalky

On Etsy since 2015

Welcome!

Let's Get Chalky began as a hobby turned business that all started with creating a 'chalkboard' for my daughter's first birthday party. I like telling people my designs are "the fun of chalk without all the mess!" (because they look just like a chalkboard when printed).

I am a full service digital shop (which means nothing is physically shipped to you). A lot of people ask...but how does it print like a chalkboard? Well, that's the magic and fun! The file I create for you to have printed will look just like a chalkboard. You can have mounted on foam board (optimal way to look like a chalkboard), printed on poster board, open frame or even canvas! The possibilities are endless.

Let's Get Chalky creates invitations, birthday chalkboards, pregnancy announcements, wall calendars, home decor and more! I also do custom orders as well, so just ask :)

Thanks for reading!

Returns and exchange details
Because the boards are custom made, there are no refunds. Once your personalized poster file has been made, I will send you a proof via Etsy. Please double check your proof prior to approving for final release of the file.

Your poster will be created based on the listing design you purchase, unless we had discussed a custom design for you in messages prior to purchase. Once I have sent the proof, revisions can be made to the poster. However if a different design is wanted all together, you will be asked to purchase the desired listing, and I am unable to provide a refund for the poster that you had previously purchased.

NOTHING IS PHYSICALLY SHIPPED TO YOU FROM THIS STORE.
Payment
I accept payment through Direct Checkout and PayPal. Once payment has been received, I will start making your order (pending I have all of your details for the board). Once an order has been started, there are no cancellations.
Shipping
All of my items are currently only available as printable or template files. This means that the buyer is purchasing a digital design to print themselves.

If you’re considering a professional printer, I recommend Prints of Love. My shop has partnered with them to offer fast, high quality yet affordable printing. Plus free 2-3 day U.S. shipping and free envelopes! Check them out at: https://printsoflove.com/lets-get-chalky/

Additional policies and FAQs
My turnaround time is 4 BUSINESS DAYS. I do not work on the weekends (unless there is a rush order) or on holidays. For example, if you order on a Monday, plan on having your proof (and final file) on that Friday. Sometimes you receive your file earlier but due to being a single business owner and mom of two, I give myself this amount of time.

Please note that my turnaround time begins once ALL information is received.

**BE CERTAIN** of the size that you order (you're able to print it, find a frame for it, etc). Once the proof has been started, you may be subject to an additional fee if you want a different size than ordered.

PLEASE double check the file before printing to avoid extra printing costs. Once printed, I am not responsible for errors since you have had the sample and the final product to look over. If you notice an error prior to printing, please let me know and I am happy to correct it. :)

Files are for personal use only. No commercial use allowed. If you attempt to sell, redistribute or pass off any of my designs as your own you will be prosecuted to the fullest extent. All of my designs are copyrighted and owned by Lets Get Chalky, LLC.

Frequently asked questions
Is this a REAL chalkboard?

No, this is not a REAL chalkboard, nor will anything be shipped to a mailing address. I make a design as a digital file and send to you as a JPEG file (picture file). You are required to print yourself.

How do I print?

When printing:
Download the attachment to your desktop.­­ Please note that opening the file on a smart phone or tablet will cause the file to be reduced in size/quality. If forwarding the file to a store or another email address, please do so from your computer. The files I send you are of the highest quality, so if they are pixelated or blurry, you have compromised the file. Please print the size dimension that the file is stated to be. If you want a different size dimension file, you must let me know so I can resize the file for you. This may be an additional fee depending on the design you have chosen.

Where do I print?

One, you can just get it printed at any printing and/or frame company. Just be sure to print ‘matte’, otherwise it will lose the ‘chalkboard’ look. It’s best to have it printed on cardstock and go from there.
Two, you can go to Costco. They do a thicker poster board for certain sizes. There is a white border on the front which you cannot remove but also gives it a nice, framed look.
Three, you can go to Office Depot and have them print on card stock and mount on foam board. This looks best in my opinion for parties or photos shoots. Walgreens does this as well but it's their board print option.
Four, you can use the the following place online: https://printsoflove.com/lets-get-chalky/. I use them for all of my printing needs!

I need my file by X date, when should I order?

My turnaround time for birthday chalkboards is 4 BUSINESS DAYS. You should plan to order closest to the date needed but also allowing for enough time to print (I suggest ordering 7 days prior to when you need your file). Many places print same day but I would call first. I suggest for last minute orders you also purchase my rush shipping. This is located under "Rush Fees" (there are sections on my Etsy store which you can sort by). This will ensure your file will be delivered by the date needed.

Please note this turnaround time is ONLY for birthday chalkboards.

But wait..I have to print it?

Yes. I do not ship your item and this is not a real chalkboard. However, all photos shown on my shop are pictures from customers who have printed the boards themselves. The process is very simple if you read through and follow my instructions. I'm also always available via email to discuss any questions or concerns you might have!

What is your turnaround time for everything else?

Pregnancy announcements: 1-2 business days (unless custom)
Invitations/thank you cards: 1-2 business days
School boards: 1-2 business days
Back in '19xx' fact milestone boards: 1-2 business days
Custom orders: depends, but usually 3-4 business days

Again, birthday chalkboards are 4 business days from date ordered.
